How can I change a private message icon?

Post by Sopalajo de Arrierez » Mon Jun 19, 2017 12:53 am

I am trying to change the icon for private messaging on a extension that adds a Telegram Link on profile page. Please see attached image:

I think the procedure could be the same for any of these icons. so I am asking about it here.

What could be the proper method?

Thanks you.
A bit complex for me. It would be great if a simpler solution is embedded on a near release of phpBB.

Anyway, I will give it a try when possible, and report here.

open /styles/your-style/theme/images/icons_contact.png in your favourite image editor and re-draw the icon there. Make sure the new icon is the same size as the bit you're replacing. Upload the new image to your server, purge the cache (you may need to clear your browser cache too) and job's done.
